So if I understand it correctly Toronto will be the #8 seed and go to Tampa unless they win, and the Yankees lose.  Then Toronto would be the 5 seed and play the AL Central runner-up, and the Yankees would be the 8 seed.

Marlins just went up 3-0 on the Yankees.

Heyman on MLB seeing highlight of Toronto up 1 and Yankees down 3 just said "bring on Yankees-Rays" 1st round.

Great play by Villar.

Defensive clinic thus far in this game.

Going to miss watching O's baseball for the next 6 months, even if these games are "meaningless".

I think the season is ending at a good point for O's fans.  We had the early season success by the guys that aren't pieces of the future and then the debut of some kids that did well despite the team playing poorly.  But we haven't seen enough losing to really sour things.

Add in that they may have done just the right amount of losing to goose the draft position, and the season definitely feels successful even if the record isn't great.

Can feel good about Mountcastle and Santander, cautiously optimistic about Stewart, Hays, Means, and the young pitching, and no major disaster holes like last year at shortstop.

If they would combine the 2019=2020 records for the draft it would almost perfect.

    • Control at what cost?  Do you really want to bank on a year of control when his cap hit is going to be 35+ million? Maybe more if QBs keep signing monster deals?  That's almost as bad as Vrabel's decision to punt on 4th and 2 from midfield.  The notion that there is no impetus to get a deal done on the Ravens side is pretty silly given his projected cap number.
    • He’s right, but not really sure what his motivation is to keep speaking about it with the media
    • And he missed a lot of last year as well. I mean, there has only been a few years of his career and you can point to him missing chunks of each season due to injury in most years. 
    • I mostly agree with you.   By the way, Santander played 141 games between the majors and the minors in 2019 and had no time on the IL that year.    I recall that some of his missed time in 2017 seemed to be the result of the O’s manipulating his Rule 5 status, though not entirely.   In 2018 he only missed about four weeks.    He was in the minors when that season ended and didn’t get called up.   His injury history really hasn’t been that bad.   
    • If they are deemed ready.  Means, Cobb, Kremer and Akin have been deemed ready.  I am not sure about Zimmermann.   He has not spent much time at AAA and he didn't do well in the small amount of time he had in the majors.   Elias/Holt will be watching in ST.  Is he ready or does he need some more time at AAA.  Elias and Holt will be the judges. I agree this is a transition year.  Its not about winning so guys will get chances when deemed ready.  But it may not be at the beginning of the season for Zimmermann, Baumann, Lowther or Wells. But I think Tyler Wells and Sceroler have a better than average chance for the Rule 5 guys to make it as long/mid relievers.  If Holt thinks he can make them decent over the season they can increase the starter depth in 2022.   Winning does not matter in 2021.
    • I agree ...but I think the Ravens are going to rush in
    • Whether you want to do it or not is irrelevant. The point is that you control him for 4 years, so there is zero rush to get a deal done.
